's also helping our environment. kristin fisher explains how. >> reporter: the opening of a new metro bus facility may not seem like a big deal, but the last time that this happened was back when buses like this ruled the streets. this is the first new metro bus facility in 23 years and it took three years and $97 million to build. it's called the shepard parkway metro bus division and it sits on 16 acres of land in southwest washington. it has parking spaces for 250 buses, massive state of the art maintenance bays, a bus wash, fueling station. it's also metro's first building to obtain the lead silver certification. the greener facility is good for the environment and also good for the 400 employees that will be working here. there's even skylights in the garages. >> 400 plus employees who now have a facility that encourages and indeed makes possible greater production and workplace satisfaction. >> obviously we'll be able to improve and maintain our vehicles much better than we have in the past, especially for those who ride the buses in the southeast and the southwest of the district.
